Houston butcher shop and cafe Revival Market will close this weekend on Sunday, July 31, after 11 years in business, but another restaurant will soon take its place.
Agricole Hospitality, the restaurant group behind other local restaurants, including Heights’ Eight Row Flint and Coltivare, decided not to renew the lease at 550 Heights Boulevard after its owners Morgan Weber, Ryan Pera, and Vincent Huyn assessed its future, according to a release.
Layne Cruz, who most recently served as Revival Market’s general manager, however, will take over the space and will develop a new restaurant that will open later this year. The new establishment will be separate from Agricole Hospitality, according to a spokesperson, but Cruz said in a statement that she plans to keep much of the foundation of Revival intact.
The new establishment will continue serving an assortment of wines, coffees, and a rotation of dishes similar to Revival, but with an updated interior, and will offer employees who worked at Revival an opportunity to continue working at the new project.
In the meantime, the space, which will close for renovations starting Monday, August 1, will serve to-go coffee from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. daily.
Dates for a grand opening will be announced in the coming weeks.
